Latin American Studies is a multidisciplinary major combining courses and faculty from a wide range of departments, including anthropology, art, business, economics, geography, history, Chicana/o studies, political science, public health, sociology, Spanish/Portuguese and women's studies. The goals of the program are to provide a deeper understanding of the people, cultures, and environments of the Western hemisphere and to encourage students to experience Latin America directly. Latin America is the primary source of immigrants in the US and has a long history of close ties with the US. It is the source of many everyday foods such as tomatoes and corn, a main supplier of oil and other resources to the US, and its artists and peacekeepers have won a disproportionate share of Nobel Prizes. The music of Latin America is trend-setting, its politics are diverse, and the economies of Latin American are unpredictable, innovative, and often volatile. Career Opportunities: Latin American studies are a general degree that leads to a wide variety of career opportunities. Latin American studies graduates work in state and federal governments, educational institutions, businesses of all sorts, international organizations, and non-profits in Latin America and the US. In addition, both the B.A. and the M.A. degrees prepare students to continue on to more advanced degree programs.
